A Simple Easter Tablescape

I’m quite excited to share this post with you all, because I’ve been working on it for a while! With Easter coming up, I’ve begun switching out some of our wintery decorations for some springier ones. I love a good tablescape, so I wanted to create one for Easter that was pretty and seasonal but not overdone. I re-used a few things from my wedding and picked up a few things from Target, and I’m really happy with how my simple Easter tablescape came out!

Spring 2017 Wish List

For February, I did a no-spend month – I felt I spent way too much money during November, December, and January, and was looking for a good way to practice some financial discipline. It was a great way to remind myself to think through all my purchases and stop impulse buying. (I do love to occasionally make a spontaneous purchase or two, and I love a good deal, but I also want to make sure I’m spending on things that will get a lot of use.) One thing that’s been helping me do that is making a list and sticking to it. I’ve been trying to write down everything I want to buy so I can prioritize purchases and buy things after consideration. So, today I’m sharing a few things from my spring 2017 wish list!
